No-No Fourchettes Strawberry Sorbet

“OK, put away your fourchettes, you'll want to savour this delicious sorbet using a spoon! Fragrant, seasonal strawberries frozen with that quintessential Italian liqueur - Sambucca! And, just in case you didn't know you were in Italy, the Fighting Fourchettes have added a sprinkling of sweet and pungent green basil throughout to make this sorbet the most visually spectacular and palate-pleasing of the Tour! As an aside, anyone on a low-fat diet will LOVE the very, very low count. :-)”

Directions

  1. Purée the strawberries with 1/4 cup of the simple sugar syrup in a food processor until smooth. Stir in the remaining syrup, Sambucca, lemon juice and minced basil; transfer to an ice-cream machine and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  2. To make Simple Syrup: Place sugar and water in a small saucepan; bring it to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer gently until the sugar has dissolved, about 3-4 minutes. Cool to room temperature. The syrup can be used immediately or stored in a covered container until needed.
  3. To serve: Scoop out prettily into stemmed cocktail glasses and tuck in a sprig of basil to one side, and a curl of lemon peel on the other. If you like, you could add a splash of sambucca over top.
